Oracle Cloud—SaaS Scalability

Is Your SaaS Running Slow? It's probably a cloud scalability problem.
Is Your Cloud Application Running Slowly?

It’s probably a cloud SaaS scalability problem.


What Is SaaS Cloud Applications Scalability?

For example, is your financial close taking weeks—instead of minutes? Cloud applications scalability could be the problem.

Companies always want fast processing of their data for timely reporting and decision-making. Meeting this requirement begins with powerful scalability. Scalability is the capability of a system or solution (in this case, SaaS applications) to handle high volumes of transactions and data as well as surges in activity. Since all business applications process transactions, the ability for any cloud application to maintain and maximize performance is key to having real-time information.

When your cloud applications scale they:

  • Readily handle periodic, high-volume increases in transactional loads, including biweekly payroll processing, seasonal sales, and month-end close
  • Effortlessly incorporate new business units, employees, and increases in operational activities
  • Keep pace with data volumes that feed reports, dashboards, and queries across all operations

What Can Happen if Your SaaS Cloud Applications Don’t Scale?

Every growing business needs scalable applications to handle the inevitable increases in data and transactions. Without scalability, you are at risk of the “noisy neighbor” syndrome as shown in this example of a traditional multi-tenant model from a legacy cloud provider. If your business shared a cloud database with this “noisy neighbor” company, you’d soon notice significantly slower processing speeds and reporting performance, along with a month-end close that takes days, rather than minutes.

Oracle does not co-mingle data in a single database. Your data is isolated and secure—for faster performance and powerful scalability.

The Oracle Advantage

Oracle reduces the risk of having noisy neighbors with a unique and differentiated secure data isolation architecture which allows for impressive scalability and increased performance. This is accomplished by eliminating the “noisy neighbor” syndrome. With secure data isolation, each Oracle Cloud customer has a dedicated environment. What does this mean?

As cloud applications scale, they process transactions quickly—regardless of volume or calendar period. Scalable SaaS applications maintain optimal performance levels. So periodic increases in data inflows are easily handled. All Oracle applications are designed and tested for scalability, so system performance and response time are not compromised.


The Bottom Line for Your Business

The best business decisions are derived from timely analysis and reporting across real-time transactional activity. With Oracle, scalability is built into SaaS cloud applications and has been rigorously tested against extreme scenarios. Here are the results:

360 million cloud transactions per hour in a simulated SaaS environment
1 million payments per hour. Simulated account receivables from more than 1,000 companies, generating more than 4 million invoices/hour in conjunction with accounts payable.

SaaS testing modeled a company with 58,000 cost centers
58,000 SaaS testing modeled a company with 58,000 cost centers, spread across 24 business units, in 12 countries
